Ultimate Beverage Challenge 85 points - Fresh apple and pear aromas open this straight-forward California Chardonnay, and on the palate the fruits are joined by vanilla, peaches and brown sugar. Round and full-bodied, with a creamy finish. (May 2012)
This vintage combines a medium body with succulent flavors of ripe peach and pineapple. Gentle notes of toasted oak create a palette that is both rounded and balanced

|Wine maker notes
|Our Redwood Creek Chardonnay has enticing aromas of ripe apple and citrus, with hints of oak. Lush flavors of vanilla, citrus and tropical fruit are framed by a rich mouthfeel. This Chardonnay is a rich, flavorful pairing for poultry, fish and cream-based pasta.
|We craft Redwood Creek wines to capture the essence of California – its people, its landscape and its way of life. Our rich, flavorful wines are made with grapes from some of California’s most renowned winegrowing regions. With a nod to the state’s emblematic tree, Redwood Creek wines are rooted in the California way of life.
California is a special place with extraordinary natural diversity, from desert plains to soaring mountains, from pristine beaches to hillside vineyards. Here, the abundant land produces an array of high quality products, from fresh produce to olive oil to award-winning wine, thanks to an exceptional climate and quality soils.
California is also home to optimism and creativity, trend setters and innovators. The people of California define their culture and push novel ideas forward. Our wines complement this lifestyle.
Our winemaker, Cal Denison, embodies the California way of life, whether crafting our food-friendly wines or embracing the incredible outdoor activities that abound here. Cal uses quality grapes from across the state to bring the spirit of California to life in every bottle of Redwood Creek wine.
